I can't believe this album is getting so bashed... 19% with 6 reviews, it's impossible. Can't you guys just open your mind and stop thinking "Oh my god, they killed Helloween"

You are not fifteen anymore. Or maybe you guys are. AH! I'm raging!

This album deserve better reckoning than that.
I had to rant.

Wouldn't it be more constructive to write your own review rebuttal than to call everyone who has reviewed the album closed-minded fifteen year olds?

You obviously have the technology, why not be the opposing viewpoint to rationally and intelligently defend the album?

Then again, if the above is the extent of the effort you care to put forth, maybe the other six people have a point.

While I'm sure a lot of the backlash is due to defiance of expectations, there is also the genuine fact that it's just not a very good compilation album.

It's not worth a 16% average, no, but your post is just as stupid as those reviews. I gave it a 49% and I think that's more representative of what kind of an album it really is. Although maybe a 40% would have been more adequate. Nothing to do with having an open mind though; it's just a pointless, vapid compilation album.

They should've tried what Candlemass did with the bonus tracks on King of the Grey Islands: redo some older, classic tracks in their newer style.

Not the weird jazzy soft rock stuff they pulled on Unarmed, I mean the keen-edged power metal acrobatics they've pulled off with Gambling with the Devil and 7 Sinners. Tell me you wouldn't want to hear a newly energized, razor-sharp version of "Keeper of the Seven Keys."

I wouldn't want to hear "Keeper of the Seven Keys," in general.

It'd be better than Unarmed. >:[
